INSTANT SHARE IS A SECURITY FLAW AND CAN ALL-TOO-EASILY PRODUCE A SECURITY BREACH.

Please... we need an option to disable this non-confirmational security 'feature' immediately.

I am being asked to not use LinqPad any longer in my day to day workflow because someone accidentally shared something to Instant Share.

We need to be able to:
a) disable the menu item so that it cannot be accidentally clicked (or even seen)
b) disable the hot key combo so that it cannot be accidentally hit
c) manage the scripts that have been uploaded on our behalf so that we can delete any sensitive scripts.

Scripts should not be automatically made publicly accessible without warning and should certainly not be left unmanageable.

Please take care of this soon so that I can reverse the policy that is being imposed. (I will likely be asked to uninstall LinqPad soon if I don't have a path forward from you.)

Thank you!

  • You could blacklist www.linqpad.net on your DNS server. Share Query will fail (could not resolve 'www.linqpad.net') and not complete.

    I see your point. Try the new beta:
    http://www.linqpad.net/download.aspx#beta

    It now presents a confirmation dialog before uploading. Let me know what you think.

    If you'd like to delete any scripts that you've uploaded, please let me know via email.
